History Bibliography

More than just history, this bibliography touches upon culture, anthropology, archeology, language, linguistics and other related topics pertaining to the people who used runes, and the countries in which they lived. Regrettably, my primary focus has been Vikings, but you will find a bit on the Teutons, Goths, Angle-Saxons, Celts, and Indo-Europeans. I plan to expand the bibliography as time permits.

If the title is hyperlinked, the book can be ordered from Click on the hyperlinked title to be taken to When possible, I've identified other sources, such as Rûna-Raven Press or Anglo-Saxon Books. I've found used copies on eBay, , and . The older ones may be available in a large public or university library or online library.

It has been brought to my attention that my bibliographies have been extracted verbatim by lazy college students, for use in their own term papers. Of course, it doesn't fool anyone. However, to make it a teeny bit more difficult, I've removed the publication data. They can still copy, but they'll have to do a bit more work. One does have to wonder if they've also copied the term papers.

In this treatise, Antonsen, who is a professor of linguistics at the University of Illinois, argues that the transcriptions of the Elhaz rune as /-R/ instead of /-z/ was something promoted by German (hence proto-Nazi) runeologists, and that the Scandinavian runologists (Antonsen is a native of Denmark) favored the transcription /-z/.

Much of Anglo-Saxon life followed a traditional pattern, of custom, and of dependence on kin-groups for land, support and security. The Viking incursions of the ninth century and the re-conquest of the north that followed both disturbed this pattern and led to a new emphasis on centralised power and law, with royal and ecclesiastical officials prominent as arbitrators and settlers of disputes.Alao available from Anglo-Saxon Books, P.O.Box 30, Brandon, Suffolk IP26 4NP.
